WHERE MID-CENTURY & CONTEMPORARY DESIGN MEET IN PERFECT UNISON:
Comfort and style have never been closer together than in Vioski’s simple but elegant designs. Jeff Vioski draws his roots from architecture, which is why his creations are so considerately constructed, and yet so fluid in form and function.
Bringing strength through proportion and the kind of timeless beauty that is very difficult to attain in this day and age, the California-based design brand wears its creations as a badge of honour. The mid-century charm is there – simplicity, functionality and a touch of minimalism exude from each object bearing the Vioski signature. However, the sleek lines and modern allure speak for themselves.
This isn’t the kind of furniture you fill a room with and then forget about it. You live with it and you celebrate it every day. The craftsmanship and attention to detail become palpable as soon as you feel the fabric and the fine wood finish. Comfort is an understatement – you could literally lose yourself in one of their Tuulla chairs, for example.
Ultimately, it’s more than furniture. It’s a luxurious celebration of living, from concept to manufacture. There is confidence at every turn and in every fold. And like Antoine de Saint Exupéry once said, “perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away”.
We’ve spent some time perusing Vioski’s collections and, as expected, we had a hard time pinning down our favourites. The clean lines and fabric finishes convey comfort as a statement.
The Fratelli set is noteworthy – a masterfully crafted marriage between two chairs and a solid wood table that can be arranged as a traditional sofa or as a deep, relaxing lounge. The table is best placed in the middle, making it perfect for drinks over a Netflix binge.
The Tuulla chair is the quintessential embodiment of thought-provoking sophistication. While it is carefully structured from frame to filling, it is also beautifully open and inviting. Each tuft is individually tied and the extremely high density foam varies from one section to another – if ever there was a visual definition for comfort, this would be it.
The solid steel base is laser cut and the solid hardwood frame is also reinforced with steel – there is strength beneath, while the surface tilts back gently and demands relaxation. The Tuulla chair is, like all Vioski products, handcrafted in California and a much-needed snippet of cultured refinement. Its interior versatility makes it a bestseller, as it seamlessly integrates in both residential projects and office workspaces.
Another great piece to consider for wider spaces – including reception and lounge areas, is the Mitosi Sectional. Its unique geometric form allows it to blend in pretty much anywhere, a single piece being a perfect lounge for one or two people. Combining three or more of these also creates beautiful, low sectional ensembles.
Perhaps the ultimate statement of synergy between contemporary and mid-century styles is best presented in the alluring lines of the Palms chair. It’s filled with extremely high density foam and complimented with top-stitching for durability and, ultimately, class.
Its enduring quality and design are eagerly expressed through sheer comfort – this is yet another one of those seaters that wrap you in their softness, compelling you to relax and forget about your physical form for a brief moment.
And speaking of ultimate comfort, there are few designs in this world that can stand against Vioski’s Chicago sofa. Perfection is achieved through simplicity – each piece is filled with custom foam, the back is architecturally structured and, for the grand finish, buttons and top stitching adorn this design opus.
All of Vioski’s furniture pieces are designed to transcend time and respond to various environments. Their bespoke options are an added perk – after all, there’s nothing better than putting your comfort in the hands of a discerning design brand.
